Today I received a letter I failed my evaluation due to poor judgment displayed in my past. My poor judgment was I was arrested for a fight at 18 years old; I am now 27 a veteran I served active duty for 4 years honorable discharged deployed to Iraq twice and joined the reserves after my contract was up. I was never diagnosed with ptsd. I have my degree in criminal justice and other then a two speeding tickets I have not been in trouble with the law since I was 18. I want to appeal it but want to know has anyone ever successfully appealed a rejection from SPB. Does anyone know any doctors I can see in Bakersfield for my appeal? I appreciate anyone who takes time reading this and or responding

today i took my appeal with the psych doctor here in bakersfield. he was very pleased with me being military and focused on many questions on my trouble past and military, he explained how i had to re take the psych test and to be 100% honest, because the last psych test i took seemed a little close to failing because i answered the questions a little too perfect which makes no sense to me. i answered all the questions the same i know they are made to trick you but i answered the same even though they re word them all. i honestly dont have high hopes for this and just waiting the two weeks for the call from the doctor to see if he passed or failed me. everyone out there good luck

the doctor failed me on the appeal due to test results saying i was to defensive. he said the test shows i might be hiding something when i was 100% upfront with my history 9 years ago being arrested for the fight. he kept trying to focus on me being a combat veteran and if i have any ptsd issues, which i dont. i was upset but it is what it is. Good luck to you SOCAL 2010

Hey, my Psych dr said my test came back defensive as well because i marked falso on alot of my questions but that all my personality traits came back as being Confident, that i follow rules, logical thinker, so im hoping ill be okay since they all kind of go together and i was 100% honest...... what were some of your personality traits from the test?

Did they tell you this when you cleared? Or the reasoning behind why you didnt?

My Psychologist showed me the chart of how my questions ranked and everything, i guess their all different on how they talk with you. Mine was joking around with me and everything too. Good luck to you too, keep us updated. i know i still have a while before i hear anything!

Sounds like we had the same doc. He also just wished me good luck. I'm dying here lol been waiting since Jan. 13th, but I see you waited a long time! Did you contact your analyst at any point? Now I have a little more hope. I sent my analyst an email with no reply.

Yes, I contacted my analyst about 3 weeks in.. which was way too early.. and she said all I could do was wait, and that all she can tell me is that I cleared my oral.. once you clear your stuff.. it gets sent up to Sac, and it needs to be given Final clearance from the main heads up there.. that is why it takes so long.

It's not up to your Psych doc or your analyst on how long it takes, you can clear in a week, but if the people don't get to your file for a while, you may not receive that clearance for months.
